Zurich turns on to Zoo TV as U2 transmit the greatest show on earth. Report and interview: Bill Graham
EVERYTHING YOU KNOW IS WRONG
For once, the relentless hail of random words and slogans on the television screens pauses for about ten seconds and the maxim appears - *Everything You Know Is Wrong*. It's as good a text as any for an exploration of this latest incarnation of U2.
The band are off, shattering preconceptions again. Sun Studios in Memphis is replaced by Hansa near the Berlin Wall; as backdrop, the vacant desert gives way to the urban hive, and right-on rock is reversed for a cacophonous futurist pop with all the glaring colours of lurid confusion. And so, dear friends, the fairytale concludes, with one transatlantic leap, our four Irish heroes are here.
